kogeto: dot panoramic lens for iPhone

‘dot’ 360-degree lens and app for iPhone

the small panoramic lens attachment ‘dot’, just announced by new york -based 3D lens developers kogeto alongside their ‘looker’ software, permits iPhone users to capture fully navigable 360-degree video footage instantly and without needing to rotate or move the device.

the company’s ‘looker’ app converts the camera’s raw stereographic view image into a navigable panorama, viewable on the phone or shareable online and through facebook and twitter using kogeto’s web platform and player. the software also makes use of the compass and gyroscope built into iPhones, enabling ‘dot’ users in the same location to link their videos together, so that a viewer may jump from one perspective to another at the same event.

currently seeking kickstarter funding to begin preparing for mass production, kogeto expects ‘dot’ to be in low-level production by early summer and full production by august. while the prototyped model works with iPhone 4 and fourth-generation iPod touch, the company plans to release versions compatible with the iPad and android phones by the end of the year.

at 15 grams, the device provides a more lightweight alternative to the previously covered go pano micro lens for iPhone.

  • I love my HTC but now I want an IPhone just for this camera. How spectacular! Please, please, please, figure out a way to mount your device on other smart phones.

  • Was that REALLY 360*?
    looked much less to me

  • I’m already using ipone 4. Now I’m badly need a camera option that can captured video footage instantly and without needing to rotate or move the device for my running project. Hope I will buy kogeto: dot as soon as possible for my iphone 4. But for my running project I got more help from [URL=http://iphone5release.org]iphone5release[/URL]
